Cruz fires back at Trump’s cheating charges, says ‘he’s losing it’

by FoxNews.com  |  published on February 4, 2016

Ted Cruz fired back at Donald Trump Wednesday over allegations that he “stole” the Iowa election, accusing the billionaire businessman of throwing a “Trumpertantrum” and questioning whether he has the “temperament” to lead.

Speaking to reporters in New Hampshire, Cruz quipped that with Trump in charge, Americans might wake up and find he’s “nuked Denmark.”

“It seems his reaction to everything is to throw a fit,” the Republican presidential candidate said, adding: “He’s losing it.”

The tough response came after Trump unleased a hail of tweets accusing the Texas Republican senator of cheating in the Iowa caucuses — calling for either a new election to be held or the results to be nullified.

He was referring to accusations from candidate Ben Carson that Cruz supporters falsely told caucus-goers the retired neurosurgeon was suspending his campaign, as well as a controversial Cruz mailer that accused Iowans of a “voting violation.”

    Cruz is a dominionist. They teach that the Old Testament is our rule of life for today.

    They believe that we DO NOT have to keep the law for salvation.

    They believe in using Genesis 1:28 to advocate that God’s law should rule society today. This view is known as Theonomy (or God’s law). This view would mean that Christians would have to keep the Old Testament laws except in the cases where the New Testament cancels out those laws.

    A highlight in the teaching of Dominion theology is the use of covenant theology. As a result and makes no distinction between the church and Israel. The problem is that the Dominion theology goes beyond traditional covenant theological bounds. They teach that the church is to be governed by the same laws and subject to the same curses and his promise the same blessings as Israel. As we know this is not what we find taught in the Bible. Christ work on the cross canceled out the old laws that applied to Israel.

    Dominion theology teaches that Christians should have a high activity in social and political arenas, not that this is necessarily a bad thing as Christians we should be involved in this arena. The Dominionist however twisted pervert this to mean that we should be in these arenas not to just influence them but to take them over and change the mandate of those areas.

    Believers of the Dominion theology movement, like many Charismatic’s, especially the Latter Rain Movement, hold to the belief that there will be a great and time revival in which masses will turn to Christ thus influencing and changing the Dominion of society. This plan will make a better place for Christians. This type of teaching promotes moral relativism instead of Christianity.

    Some Dominionist father teachings of George Ladd, and believe that we are now in the kingdom page in one sense but in another sense that the kingdom age is still yet to come. They believe that we are in the kingdom now and have authority over the kingdom, but on the other hand we are still ushering in the kingdom for Christ to return. They believe that Christ will return after a certain amount of Dominion is extent Bush here on earth, and away the advocate that there is a formula to make Christ returns.

    The teachings of Dominion theology follow a post-millennial view and usually fall into the line of Arminian theology. Many believe that you can lose yourself salvation.

    Dominion theology believes in extra biblical revelations such as prophecy and speaking in tongues. Even though the continuation of the gifts is taught in 2 Corinthians 14, the Dominionist goes beyond what is taught in the Bible on the use of these gifts. They hold the use of prophecy and tongues over and above the teaching of the Bible. They believe that prophecy and tongues spoken today our new revelations into the word of God that they hold the same level as the inspired original word of God.

    Dominionist use an allegorical hermeneutics approach to prophecy. They believe that the Great Tribulation took place at the fall of Israel in A.D. 70; the anti-Christ refers to the apostasy of the church prior to the fall of Jerusalem; the beast of Revelation was Nero and the Roman empire. This teaching is propagated by such teachers as Hank Hanegraaff and is known as Preterism. This teaching of course is not held to be the common eschatology of most Christians and is seen as a non-normaltive teaching.

    Cruz is fighting back because Trump is ahead in the NH polls. Cruz has no answers but to deny he is a Canadian Citizen (up to 2014) . He omitted financial information about his Goldman loans while a Canadian Citizen. Cruz is an opportunist. The hell with the truth is his motto. He must answer to FEC. Until then remember Cruz is bought by big banks and SuperPAC contributions. #tcot

  • Webb

    Cruz in 2016…
    Make the Choice…Its Politics!

  • Robert Early

    Sure he can fire CNN. Trump fired FOX.
    Lol ! Ted is still on my possibility list; but my family and I will never vote for Rubio.

  • ppeony

    Doesn’t mean smart is right. Yes, he threw bouts in SENATE. Experience in society,world not there. Like all 3, but they compliment trump. Each has own pluses. SEE WHAT TRUMP DID FOR THESE GUYS. BROUGHT THEM OUT WITH GUYS,FINSLLY.

  • Seedman

    Ted Cruz is right about Donald. An angry man stirs up strife, and a hot-tempered man abounds in transgression. Donald does not have the leadership qualities a good president would need. He still has most of his money and upon bowing out will still find enough politicians willing to be swayed by donations as Donald is in the habit of doing.

    • eassa

      Very well said.

  • Robert Early

    Hey Ted ! If you are not the cheating creep in your campaign, then how about firing the cheating creeps????

    • Briylaln

      I don’t think he can fire CNN – which is where all of this started

  • Mrs. O

    Bernie and Tricia. I find reading your arguments with each other very silly. You’re arguing over two men who have obvious flaws that in my opinion make them both unqualified to be our Commander & Chief. Carson is the only candidate that no one can say anything bad about. Trump has tried, but his argument is childish. He’s focusing on whwat Carson did when he was 14 yrs old. Well, how many of us can say we didn’t do anything stupid when we were 14. He grew up and matured well beyond what that 14 yr. old boy was. He’s the most admired man of the candidates. He has no experience in politics but that, in my opinion, makes him pure and untouched by the greed and corruption that we the people are so sick of. He’s a brilliant man and can learn very fast how to be a smart and effective leader and he will call on all his experts for advice, unlike Obama who does what he wants without consulting Congress. Carson is the only man we can truly trust and be proud of. He is the only man that leaders of other countries will respect and enter into agreements with knowing that he’s an honorable man and will keep his word. You can’t lose with Carson, but you risk a lot with Trump’s temper & childish ways and you’ll never be able to trust the word of Cruz after the lie he told about Carson quitting the race. Rethink your decisions.

  • KDC

    Yup, I’d sure like to see the fit Cruz would display if someone did that to him. Just another low life politician cheating. Thou shalt not covet, Cruz.

    • eassa

      We have all witnessed Cruz’ behavior since Trump released his fury against Cruz on Jan 2nd. Cruz has not played the mud slinging game, constantly saying that he likes and respects Trump, while stating his position on whatever issue Trump’s attack was of the day and ignoring the rest.
      Cruz responded to this latest rage of Trump’s by stating his observation to this outrageous behavior.
      If you haven’t observed Trump’s vicious and cry baby tactics, something is wrong with your powers of observation.

      • KDC

        Cruz is a dominionist. He’s not what you think.

  • SDofAZ

    Trump does not cheat. BO cheats, apparently Cruz CHEATS too. And I have not seen a politician yet who does not cheat. Too bad, I expected Cruz to man up not pretend to obfuscate when he has to realize all the honest candidates have reason to be offended!

    • KDC

      How about Ben Carson? Won’t find anything there.

  • SDofAZ

    The truth is his organization did cheat on the Iowa stop. Does the buck stop with the head guy or not? Does this feel like more of BO’s tactics? The blame for your minions is your responsibility.

  • bobnstuff

    Trump doesn’t like losing and has to make an excuse for it. If it hadn’t been Cruz it would have been the Media or the party. He can’t stand not being number one. His ego is amazing, he will make things up just to feel good. Take his net worth. He says $10, billion while the most anyone else says is $4.5. It makes no difference to the voters but it does to him. I believe he has a problem. Is he mentally stable enough to have a finger on the button?

    • KDC

      It didn’t originate from Trump, or did you miss that? Cruz knows what he did to Carson, and Carson knows too.

      • bobnstuff

        How many Carson supporters do you think get Tweets from Cruz? Do you think the people who represented Carson in the meeting believed that Carson was going home? Trump is looking for an excuse for not winning. If it wasn’t this it would have been the media was against him, he started on that one till the Cruz thing came up. Trump just can’t believe that everyone doesn’t love him as much as he love himself.

  • Bernie Lounds

    Idon’ think Cruz i honest enough to be our President.We have had enough cheaters and liars already.

    • eassa

      Bernie, don’t you see that Trump’s behavior is strange, to say the least? News sources have reported the timeline and what happened with Carson campaign team, Cruz is not to blame.
      So forget Cruz at this moment and focus on Trump’s actions, on his behavior. Think about what Trump’s motivation might be for him to make these sort of charges.

      • Bernie Lounds

        You are reading from the wrong news sources.I haven’t heard anything that clears Cruz yet.

        • eassa

          Ok, check out Dana Loesch’s report.
          Would you talk to me about Trump’s behavior?

          • Bernie Lounds

            I don’t know what you mean by Trumps behavior.He says it like it is and has a very good first instinct and first impression of people.He is the most honest person I have seen run for any office tin the last 20 years.He doesn’t speak PO bullshit like most .That’s what I do.I call a spade a spade and if people don’t like it then they are part of the problem.,

          • Tricia Harris

            You just don’t want to admit that Trump’s behavior is little different than Obama – that of a spoiled BRAT who has to have his way at ever turn! Trump would be as bad for our country as Obama. Trump is used to getting his way – just like Obama has been – and he’s used to FIRING people when he doesn’t. He can’t FIRE other world leaders. He can’t FIRE members of Congress! He can’t FIRE Americans who don’t support his twisted behavior! He won’t be a good President because he doesn’t have the mind or the self-control to be a good President!

          • SDofAZ

            Trump did NOT CHEAT. BO CHEATS and now we know CRUZ CHEATS. So who is more like BO?

          • bobnstuff

            Ask his wives if he cheats. I’m sure you would support him just like he said even if he shot someone.

          • KDC

            Least he’s not homosexual pretending to be a Christian straight guy. Yeah, that’s really honest! Or pretending to be a natural born citizen, when he’s not!

          • bobnstuff

            How do you know he’s not a homosexual? We know he’s not a Christian, he can’t even remember which church he is a member of. He has told you that he thinks you are a sheep.

          • Tricia Harris

            Trump doesn’t cheat? Really? Ask his ex-wives how much he cheats! Cruz does NOT lie or cheat. And Cruz doesn’t have TEMPER TANTRUMS when he fails to get his way! Trump has tantrums just as much as Obama does! Who’s the better man here?

          • frank_o_anerican

            I liked Cruz till he pulled his tricks on Ben, That told me just how right all the senators were and why they don’t like Cruz. He can’t be trusted.

          • Tricia Harris

            They don’t like Cruz because he calls them out for NOT doing their jobs and representing the people of their states over siding with the Liberals and Obama. Are YOU really that happy with your Senators and Congressmen? REALLY? Are they doing the job you elected them to do? My other Texas Senator Cornyn is NOT listening to us, but Ted Cruz is! He is a man of his word and of great character. HE did NOT pull any stunts on Ben Carson – some of his supporters did, and that’s NOT his fault. Although he manned up and apologized that some of his supporters did this, which shows one heck of a lot of character. You might want to rethink your opinion and look at how great a job YOUR Congress representatives and Senators are doing? Are they doing what you elected them to do? Is Ted Cruz hated because he IS doing what we elected to and calling out those who are NOT supporting and defending the Constitution? Think about it!

          • frank_o_anerican

            I don’t like any of them, that’s why I want Trump.

          • Tricia Harris

            So you are happy to have another spoiled BRAT in the White House who has tantrums when he doesn’t get his way? I thought 8 years of that would be enough. Take a darn good look at Trump – he’s fine as long as he’s getting his way. When people don’t do what he wants he yells, screams, curses, and IF he can, he FIRES them. He can NOT do that with other world leaders. He can NOT FIRE Congress when they fail to do what he wants. What makes you think that Trump will be any different than Obama? He is also doing exactly what Obama did in 2008 – saying what the American people WANT to hear – HOPE AND CHANGE! How’s that worked out for you?

          • Briylaln

            “…till he pulled tricks on Ben.” No, you NEVER liked Cruz

          • KDC

            Are you kidding me? BO is a flaming sodomite with a transgender “wife” with two adopted girls from Morocco. Who’s blatently cheating you?

          • frank_o_anerican

            Cruz lies and cheats and also changes his mind on issues if he thinks it will help his campaign.

          • KDC

            BO is a tool and a personality like a limp fish! I’ll take Trump’s any day of the year. He isn’t PC either. PC is a direct hit to our first amendment.

          • bobnstuff

            I didn’t know that Obama was running in the republican primary. What are you going to do next year? I guess you should start practicing Hillary bashing. PC is not a bad thing by the way it means you care for other peoples feeling. Not one of your problems.

          • Briylaln

            No, PC is BS

          • bobnstuff

            adjective

            Simple Definition of politically correct

            : agreeing with the idea that people should be careful to not use language or behave in a way that could offend a particular group of people.

            When I was little I was taught that it was a good thing not to try to offend people. Now it would seem that being offensive is a quality we look for in our president. I was under the impression that our president was everyone’s president and that offending American citizens of any group would not be a good thing. How times have changed.

          • Briylaln

            Alright smart guy. The “Definition” of PC is far away from what it actually is. Either you’re being disingenuous or you’re lacking in the brains department.

          • bobnstuff

            Websters is right. Just because misusing words is now the rage with those who think it’s cool to be stupid doesn’t change the meanings. The republican party is the party of stupid.

          • frank_o_anerican

            PC is the speak of the DEM so they can talk over people so the low information voter can’t understand them and will think the DEM’s are sooo smart. They won’t ask questions because they don’t want to look dumb.

          • bobnstuff

            Are you complaining that the Democrats are using big words and that you would prefer be spoken to in fourth grade language. I guess being talked down to is not bad when thinking for yourself is to much work. I guess Spiro Agnew must have really upset you.

          • Briylaln

            I read numerous other posts of yours. Your thinking and my thinking just don’t match up. Keep with your liberal, progressive, Obama is the best there’s ever been BS. I wont loose any sleep over it

          • bobnstuff

            Another word that you don’t understand, progressive. It means to move forward, forward thinking, trying new things, social reform. An other thing you won’t find in the republican party of the Tea Party.

          • KDC

            No it means communism.

          • KDC

            It is bad because it’s your opinion. Who are your or anyone to impose your rules on someone else, even if something was said in bad taste? Its an attack on our freedom of speech.

          • bobnstuff

            You have the right to be stupid but I also have the right to point it out. Language has standard meaning for words, you would learn them in school or you can go to a dictionary and look them up. Misusing word show that you don’t understand their meaning and show a lack of education. Trump talk on a fourth grade level. I hope he’s not to far above your level.

          • KDC

            Exactly my point “nstuff”. You just said,”When I was little I was taught that it was a good thing not to try to offend people”. Well, pointing out that you think someone is stupid is your God given right. I don’t have to like it, but you have every right to say what you feel. It shouldn’t get under anyone’s skin if someone disagrees.
            Btw, just because you may not know a word doesn’t mean you have a lack of education. Unless, of course, YOU wrote the dictionary.

          • bobnstuff

            It’s all about the meaning of words and yes if you don’t know the meaning of a word you use it is because you have not educated yourself. On these pages the meaning of the Constitution is a hot topic, and it all comes down to the meaning of words and what the people who wrote them meant. When you say progressive and communism mean the same thing you show a lack of respect for the meaning of those words. It’s apples and oranges. We have dictionaries to help standardize our language so everyone uses the same meanings for the same words. If you wish to communicate you use those standard meanings, if you are speaking just to make noise then I guess you don’t care if anyone understands you.

          • SDofAZ

            Right on Bernie. Cruz has already accepted his blame here but he was not without knowledge of the incidents. The man was involved!

      • KDC

        Trump didn’t make up these charges. It came from Cruz’s camp.

      • Kitty

        Trump is right to bring this up because Carson lost votes to Cruz and that is what pushed Cruz to win. Simple. I am being objective here – put yourself in Trump’s shoes – why should he not be upset. I am not saying Cruz intentionally did this – CNN put out news Carson was leaving – so Cruz campaign took advantage of this and went after Carson supporters. This is in fact what happened. It is too bad for all concerned, as it makes Cruz look bad, Carson loses some votes, and of course Trump loses Iowa.

        • eassa

          Listen to Megyn Kelly interview Glenn Beck on GOP 2016 Race.
          Or have trumpites been banned from Kelly because she is a. . . .whatever your leader has called her.

    • Tricia Harris

      Well, Bernie, then you have a massive problem with your thinking process. He’s far superior to Trump in temperament – you don’t see Ted Cruz throwing Temper Tantrums when he doesn’t get his way! He’s far superior to Trump in intelligence – one of his law professors at Harvard said Ted Cruz was the brightest and most talented student he’d EVER TAUGHT! Ted Cruz loves the Constitution – you don’t see Trump quoting the Constitution. Ted Cruz is strong in his faith, and lives it every day – you don’t even know what faith Trump is other than the church of money and wealth (remember Trump saying “in TWO CORINTHIANS, it’s says…” – that shows Trump knows very little about the Bible, much less his own faith – particularly apparent when he attacked Dr. Carson regarding HIS faith)! We Texans elected Ted Cruz to go to Washington and shake things up – not to go there to ‘get along” with the DemocRATS, Liberals, and RINOS and he has kept his word to us and done just that. Yes all of the above despise him and you need to be asking yourself “WHY?” They despise him because THEY are NOT DOING THEIR JOBS and Ted Cruz is doing exactly what we the people of Texas wanted him to do. He will be a far superior President to all of them since Reagan! Ted Cruz is NOT a cheater or a liar – but you might want to be looking at Trump’s behavior!

      • Bernie Lounds

        You sound like the people who say Obama ins a brilliant man and well educated.Just look at the damn mess he’s got us into.That’s the trouble with today’s education system it’s taught by liberal open minded people who’s minds are so open that there brains fell out along time ago and don’t have a bit of common sense anymore at all.Trump can’t be to much of a dummy and be as rich as he is.And don’t hand me that (well he inherited it bullshit because in this world today you have to be damn awfully smart to hold on to it with all the crooked people out there.

        • I Seigel

          Yeah, this whole idea of sending to kids to public schools for a “free education” should be completely rethought and reworked. The problem is, people get “educated”, and then bad things start to happen. And “brilliant people” make even more of a mess than regular ones.

          • KDC

            Nothing is Free!

      • KDC

        Superior? Get off the wagon! The only superior candidate out there is Ben Carson. Dont forget to add to your religious point, ” thou shalt NOT covet thy neighbor’s goods.” This means you’ll do ANYTHING to gain something your neighbor has.

      • Robert Early

        Actually, Trump is Biblically correct. Paul’s Letter is labeled 2 Corinthians; not Second. Perhaps you don’t know your Bible.

        • Tricia Harris

          You are the one who is incorrect. Obviously never listened in Sunday School while you were asleep.

      • frank_o_anerican

        Can you tell me what Ted has really got done since he has been in Washington, No one seems to like him and I find it hard to remember anything he has done.

        • Tricia Harris

          Good grief, pay attention. They don’t like him because HE IS DOING HIS JOB and THEY are not. He’s fought Obamacare from the first day he was elected – because WE WANT THE DAMNED POS LEGISLATION REPEALED – it’s a nightmare. He’s fought on the Sequester and showed up with all of our other members of Congress when Obama had the War Memorials barricaded to prevent the veterans from going to them. He’s fought the Gang of 8 on Amnesty (Rubio lied about Ted Cruz supporting Amnesty, he never did). He’s fought for 2nd Amendment rights. He’s defended marriage. He’s fought on the IRS targeting Conservatives. He’s fought against partial birth Abortions. The list goes on and on and one of what he has done while he’s been in Congress. He’s doing a superb job, and yes all the Liberals, Democrats, and RINOs hate him – which IF you are a true Conservative and support our Constitution should make you take another look at how well YOUR Congressmen and Senators are doing their jobs and supporting the Constitution. Go take a look at his resume and his accomplishments – he argued 9 cases at the Supreme court — and won! He’s worked very hard and done a superb job at every avenue!

          • frank_o_anerican

            again what has he done, we still have Obamacare, and the sequester, give me a break what did that get us?

          • Tricia Harris

            Read his resume, Ted Cruz has tried harder than all the others put together. He’s ONE VOTE in the Senate- ONE! Harry Reid has lied, and Mitch McConnell LIED! Ted Cruz called both of them out on it. He railed against Obamacare for 21 HOURS – how many others have done that? Mike Lee talked for a while and supported Ted, so did Rand Paul and a few others. The rest of the Democrats and RINOs go along to get along. He’s fought hard, but he’s ONE VOTE! He can’t OVERRIDE the votes of the Democrats and RINOS! Give me a break just what the heck has Trump done other than brag about how much money he has. He’s donated millions to DEMOCRATS Hilary, Pelosi, Obama, Reid, Deblasio, and numerous other Democrats in order to BUY FAVORS. That is NOT how we need the office of President to be run. He has the same kind of tantrums Obama has when he doesn’t get his way. He is NOT Presidential material in character, in intelligence, or in ethics – Just look up Vera Coking if you don’t believe that. He’s for eminent domain in order to get what he wants – just wait an see how you feel about them taking away your land for the “good of the people” when the people is Donald Trump! Ted Cruz is a Constitutional Conservative, true to his word and he works hard to keep it and maintain professionalism. You do NOT see Ted Cruz throwing tantrums when he doesn’t get his way! Obama and Trump are cut from the same spoiled brat cloth. And if you tell me Trump doesn’t cheat, let’s ask BOTH his ex-wives if that is true! Let’s ask the people who lost homes because of eminent domain in order for Trump to put up one of his hotels or casinos if he doesn’t cheat, then come back and tell me he’s honest, ethical, and KNOWS THE CONSTITUTION, and support the American people over himself!
